Hilary Swank In 'The Resident': Direct-To-DVD Film's Trailer

From Oscars to unreleased.

Two time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank has seen her career hit a rough patch of late, with her movie about Amelia Earhart, 'Amelia,' failing, and even her most recent critical success, 'Conviction,' not doing well at the box office. Now, she's doing a direct-to-dvd film.

Swank stars in 'The Resident,' in which she'll play a Brooklyn doctor under siege from either a former resident... or the apartment itself. The movie co-stars Christopher Lee and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, but it wasn't enough to get it in theaters in the United States. It will, however, be released on the big screen in Britain.

It was reported in December that the CW was preparing a reality/game show about fashion for Swank, which would involve fashion die-hards competing for a big prize.
